LMAX Exchange Everest Rugby Challenge

The LMAX Exchange Everest Rugby Challenge takes place across 24 days (12 April to 5 May 2019) and will see rugby stars Andy Gomarsall, Ollie Phillips, Shane Williams and Tamara Taylor trek alongside 20 inspirational men and women to heights of 6,500 metres to play the highest game of full contact rugby and the highest game of mixed touch rugby in history – all in support of Wooden Spoon.

The LMAX Everest Rugby Challenge aims to raise more than £200,000, which will make a real difference to our beneficiaries. Based on previous year’s this could change the lives of around 36,000 children and young people. The money raised could fund:

* 10 sensory rooms – that enthral, engage and excite young minds by stimulating children’s senses
* 66 Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) horses – centres across the UK & Ireland
* 40 rugby wheelchairs – that enable young people with disabilities to have more opportunities to play
* 100 HITZ young people supported for a year – delivered nationally by Premiership Rugby, the Wooden Spoon sponsored HITZ programme gives new hope to those with no hope by guiding them back to education, vocational training, apprenticeships and employment.

Thank you for helping us work towards our vision that through the power of rugby, every child and young person has access to the same opportunities, no matter what their background.
